BOROUGH OF GRAVESHAM - SWANSCOMBE
Remember Me To All - Volume 4
Although Swanscombe is in the Dartford area, it has always been associated with Gravesend and the Borough of Gravesham – thus the inclusion in the series.

The book has a lengthy history of Swanscombe and features Joe Hoadley, a veteran of World War 2 whose contribution to the book is fully acknowledged.
